: well, i think it is a problem, craig. the obama administration had been hoping when kim jong-un took over that he would help to lead north korea out of isolationism. really the opposite has happened. he's become more bellicose than his father and these intercepters are going to be placed because of recent provocations from north korea and there is a sense that they've made advances in nuclear capabilities. last week, north korea threatened a preemptive nuclear strike against the united states and also they're ending their treaty with south korea. to there is a lot of concern. we should say this move to increase the number of intercepters marks a shift in the obama administration's policy, because back in 2010, they had said they weren't going to add new intercepters. this comes as president obama is just starting his second term. he's mapped out an ambitious agenda. but experts say this is going to take up a large portion of the next several years, concerns about north korea and iran, as well. >> let's talk about the vice president for a second, vice president biden is going to be le
